You can also contact a community legal clinic or Legal Aid Ontario. Community legal clinics give free legal advice, but not all of them can help with problems in long-term care homes. Check with the community legal clinic in your area to see if they can help. Legal Aid’s website at www.legalaid.on.ca can help you find the community legal clinic for your area. Click on “Contact” then “Community legal clinics”.
